May Scavenger Hunt
May 1 - May 28 31 June 5, 2016
 
Each week, a theme will be revealed. You will need to search for things in the game that follow this theme, take a screenshot of it, and submit it to me by PM. At the end of the week, the screenshots will be collected and judged against each other. The more unique the item, the more points you get (details are listed under Rewards). Once judging is done, all screenshots will be posted in this thread along with the scores.
 
NOTICE Deadline for Week 4 extended until May 31st because of the error message when accessing the forums. If the forums aren't back to normal before then, I can extend it further.
 
NOTICE Deadline for Week 4 extended even more (until June 5) because I did not have internet and couldn't give feedback on entries :( I have internet now and will check at least once per day.
 
Themes
:p_smile:
May 1-7: PORING (results)
 
May 9-14: FLIPS (results)
 
May 15-21: FREYJANITY (results)
 
May 22-28: INSECT (results)
 
Rules
  • 1 Entry per person per week/theme. If there is more than one item in your screenshot, please pick 1. When a new week/theme starts, you get 1 more entry.
  • You can work together, if you want - but submitting the same item will hurt your score, so be careful!
  • Entries will be private (send to me in PM). This is to prevent another player from taking your points! All entries will be posted publicly after judging. Entries submitted in this thread will not be considered, and the post will be removed.
  • I need to receive your entry by 12 noon each Sunday. The next week's theme will be posted at this time.
  • Please leave your UI on and do not edit your screenshot (covering your chatbox is OK).
  • OK Items: Items in bag, Costumes on players, Monsters, NPCs, Environments, Auction House (items and previews)
    • Monsters with the same visual, but different name, is allowed. Example: Manderu and Small Manderu are allowed.
    • If you have a Card in your bag or equipped, it is OK. Card UI is not OK.
  • Not OK Items: User Interfaces (UI) or HUD (Example), Guild Emblems, Skill Icons, Pets, old event items, VIP
    • Dye does not change an item. A red-dyed costume and blue-dyed costume will be considered the same.
  • WP Staff's decisions are final and binding.
  • Event details and prizes are subject to change at any time.

Rules Clarification

 

I realize that this first week has been a bit bumpy with the rules and such, so I tried to be a bit relaxed with them. I'll also clarify the most common issue right now, which was image editing:

  • I mostly just want to be able to tell where you are. For the Disheartened Poring and Rapper Porings above, they're only in one spot, so it's pretty obvious. But, for Diantice's and AngeloMark's entries, it might be harder to find those spots without the UI visible.
  • The image doesn't need to be pretty (if you want to take pretty pictures, check out the Tourism Guidebook!). So editing it with effects or overlay images isn't necessary.
  • I don't need to see your chatbox or zeny amounts, but if you want to leave it that's fine too. You can cover it like Wyrdd did (move the chatbox to the bottom right, then put other UI boxes on top), or you can edit it to put a black box over those parts.
  • I do like to see your name in the picture, but I'm not going to refuse an entry over it.

Probably the 2nd most confusing point was not allowing the UI for entries:

  • This is specifically to prevent use of images that are part of the UI - the Poring on the Menu bar, the HP/SP Porings, the Polymorph debuff Poring, the Flip on the bottom of the Attendance Calendar, and so on.
  • Costumes are always allowed - in a shop, Auction House, another player, in the Kafra Shop, on an NPC.
  • Mounts in the UI would not be OK. It needs to be summoned or an item.
  • Cards - Just show me that you can see/find an item that exists. The card album browser does not do this (but if you have the card in the Card Album storage, it's OK). This would not allow submission of the Saintess Gold/Epic card series, because they do not exist outside the UI (as far as I know. If they did, you sent me a screenshot of it, and it fit the theme, it would be OK).

I hope this clears up the confusion for the following weeks! If you ever have a question or problem, feel free to let me know. Also, if you get your entry in early in the week, it gives me the opportunity to let you know if I can't accept it, and then you can submit something else.

 
Entry Form
Character Name: 
Theme: 
Item or Object name:
Screenshot: 
 
Rewards
"This sounds like a lot of work! What's in it for me?"
 
Rewards will be decided by a scale system based on uniqueness of object found. A perfect score would be a 5. For each extra person who also submits that item, each person receives 1 less point:
  • 1 person: 5 points each
  • 2 people: 4 points each
  • 3 people: 3 points each
  • 4 people: 2 points each
  • 5 people: 1 points each
  • 6+ people: 0 points each
Points can be redeemed for prizes in a way similar to Trivia. Please see the chart below:

I've updated the rules a bit.

 

1 entry per person is now per week or theme. Each person will get a new entry with a new week or theme.

Not OK items:

VIP (part of UI)

Old event items (items should be available to all players, within reason)

Another rule edit:

I'm allowing items and previews from the Auction House. I don't feel that you have to buy an item to get it in your bag just for an entry.

 

Feel free to post questions here or send them to me via PM!

Yep!

 

The Ninja & Monster DNA Random Box has a chance to drop RO1 Ninja Style (Man 0 Slot) or RO1 Ninja Style (Woman 0 Slot), and is otherwise a bunch of completed DNA.

 

The DNA&Card Random Box has a chance to drop: one of some random items, +8 refinement stones, nicer DNA (Willow Worker, Imp, Merem, Eremes, Lamort, etc), and cards that are used for the Legendary Card Master title - including the blue ones.

 

The links will bring you to a page that shows everything in the box and the % chance of dropping.

 

Edit: Oh, and the Anniversary Card Box has 8 gold (epic) cards, it will give 1 of them.

Hey everybody!

 

I've gotten quite a few great entries this week, keep them coming! I'll accept any entries until 12 noon (server time) on Sunday (tomorrow). I'm going to be a bit busy at that time, so I might not be able to post the results right away, but I'll do my best to announce the new theme. I will post results as soon as possible after entries close.

 

Happy Hunting!

Okay, the new theme is...

Freyjanity!

Send me a picture of something related to the Freyjanity - if it doesn't say it directly (like the "Freyjanity" monster tag), tell me in "Item or Object Name" how it is related to the Freyjanity.

Entries in any language will be accepted.

Good luck!!!

I just found out I forgot to make a post about the results. Sorry about that! Here are the results.

 

Also, if you want to redeem a prize right away, you can let me know by posting here or in a PM. As long as you have enough points, I'll let the CMs know so they can send it out. Waiting to collect points is also OK.

 

Let me know if there are any questions :ok:

It's the 4th and Final week of the May (Anniversary) Scavenger Hunt!

 

Here are the results from Week 3 - there was a LOT of competition with some of these entries! As always, if something doesn't look right or I missed an entry, just let me know.

 

And finally, the theme for Week 4 is: INSECT! Grab a picture of something that is an insect. It can be an insect, a spider, a bug*, a creepy-crawly, whatever! Send me the picture via PM, and I'll let you know when I accept it. If it's not acceptable, I'll let you know so you can find something else.

 

*Bugs with the game (software bugs) won't be accepted for this... but if you do have one that's not already on the BLOB, post it there!

Hi everyone,

 

There's a couple rules I'd like to highlight today. These rules have been either misunderstood or overlooked a couple times recently.

 

  • Images from the card album are not OK. The only exception to this is the 2nd tab of the card album, where cards are stored - if a card is in here, I will accept it.
  • Sunday at 12 noon Pacific (server) time is a hard deadline. I must have an acceptable entry in my inbox before this time! This is for fairness with the entry period - the event opens and closes at the same time for everyone, and lasts the same amount of 168 hours for everyone. I will let you know if your entry is Accepted or Not Accepted as soon as I can - the later you send me an entry, the less time I have to let you know, and the less time you have to fix it. If I tell you your entry is Not Accepted, I will also let you know why, and often give a suggestion for how you can turn it into Accepted.

I apologize to everyone that did not get an acceptable entry sent in time for Week 3. :(

Hello everyone!

 

I apologize for being unresponsive this week. I ended up without internet when I thought I would have some, so I was not able to check access the forums. I've extended the event until June 5th. This will let me give feedback on everyone's entries since I've been away. If you've just found the event, and want to participate, feel free to jump in!
